UTSA Lecturer Suspended After DEA Raid at Her Apartment Uncovers 40,000 Counterfeit Adderall Pills Made with Meth

Posted By on Thu, Dec 12, 2019 at 10:43 AM

A University of Texas at San Antonio lecturer has been suspended following a drug raid on her home.

Agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration seized 40,000 counterfeit Adderall pills at the instructor's unit in the Ventura Ridge Apartments on Wednesday afternoon, according to a report from the Express-News. One other suspect has been named in the case.

The confiscated pills were made with methamphetamine, according to media reports.

A spokesman from the university, Joe Izbrand, identified Rose Rodriguez-Rabin, a lecturer in its writing program, as one of the suspects. She's been suspended from her duties pending an investigation.

"The UTSA Police Department is working closely with federal law enforcement officials to determine if the allegations against her extend to any criminal activity on our campuses," Izbrand said.

News 4 San Antonio reports Rodriguez-Rabin, 51, used methamphetamine to make the pills inside her fourth-floor apartment. She's expected to face charges related to manufacturing and distribution.

Rodriguez-Rabin and the other suspect, Brandon Simms, are due in court for an initial hearing Thursday. Given the amount of drugs found at the home, authorities also expect to name other suspects.
